Cheap but chic

I spent yesterday in Praque and I met a lot of interesting people. But one woman got stucked in my mind because of her outfit. She was holding Louis Vuitton bag and she was talking to a man who was apparently her sponsor. I am pretty sure her outfit was worth thousands of dollars but she looked terrible. If you separate all pieces of her outfit you would probably love them but together it wasnt making sence. And that was the moment I have realized you can wear designer clothes and still look pretty bad. That is the reason why I have decided I will create outfits whose pieces arent more expensive than 75 $ (prices in dolars are orientational) and show you that you can look good even though you are not the richest person:)
                                                                      //////
Včerejší den jsem strávila v Praze a potkala jsem tam mnoho zajímavých lidí. Ale jedna žena mi utkvěla v paměti kvůli jejímu outfitu. V ruce držela kabelku Louis Vuitton a mluvila s mužem, který byl patrně její sponzor. Jsem si jistá, že její oblečení mělo cenu tisíce dolarů, ale ona vypadala příšerně. Pokud byste oddělili jednotlivé kousky, nejspíš byste je milovali, ale dohromady to nedávalo smysl. A to byl okamžik, kdy jsem si uvědomila, že můžete nosit značkové oblečení a přesto vypadat hrozně. Proto jsem se rozhodla, že budu vytvářet outfity, jejichž jednotlivé kousky nebudou dražší než 1500 Kč, a ukážu vám, že můžete vypadat dobře, i když nejste nejbohatší.

Because of the horrible weather which is probably gonna last forever, here is an outfit for colder days:)
1. Coat – Mango:  50 $
2. Bag – Mango: 60 $
3. Boots – Humanic 75 $
4. Scarf – Mango: 23 $
5. Hat – New Yorker: 19 $
6. Dress – Mango: 60 $
7. Necklace – Asos: 13,5 $
8. Ring – Asos: 10,5 $
                                                                  ////
Kvůli strašnému počasí, které už asi bude trvat napořád, je tady outfit pro chladnější dny:)
1. Kabát – Mango: 999 Kč
2. Kabelka – Mango: 1199 Kč
3. Kozačky – Humanic: 1499 Kč
4. Šála – Mango: 449 Kč
5. Klobouk – New Yorker: 379 Kč
6. Šaty – Mango: 1199 Kč
7. Náhrdelník – Asos: 279 Kč
8. Prstýnek – Asos: 219 Kč

    Totally agree – just because you are wearing designer doesn`t mean you look good. You can`t buy a sense of style. Love how you interpreted the idea to choose chep yet chic items.>'.'<

    YES!!! Now you're talking! People think that expensive clothes always look good, but seriously style is deeper than money. And anyways, if you do not have a sense of style, just…keep it simple, you know? It's simple logic. Anyway, this look is so pretty! I don't even know which piece to pick as my favorite! Being a shoe hopeless lover, though, I'll take these gorgeous boots! They're all worth their 75 euros!!!

      Thank you for your wonderful comment, my dear. You are absolutely right about it. You can look stylish wearing cheap clothes as well as you can mix designer pieces in a horrible way. Those boots really are gorgeous and they cost 75 dollars so its even cheaper then you thought :)Kisses!!!

    Hahahaha, that's so true. That's why they say you can't buy taste…Or what about those bad-tasters that know how to make the most wanted and luxurious designer piece look very cheap. I wonder then how they do that.. Maybe i did too once lol 😉 I hope not, haha.All love Lolawww.fashionrecession.blogspot.com

    i couldn't agree more!! one doesn't need to dress in designer(s) to look good. style is not about the price tags nor labels, it's how u wear them. love your post!! u have a flair for writing!!xoxomochaccinoland.blogspot.com

    Děkuju za pochvalu.Jsem rád,že se fotky líbí.Jinak co se týče článku souhlasím.Někteří lidé co mají spoustu peněz a mohou si koupit téměř cokoli v oblečení ztrácejí soudnost a jejich styly jsou někdy opravdu příšerné.Neříkám že všichni.Někdo tu eleganci má.Ale skvělý outfit se dá poskládat i z levného a vyfiknout se může vážně každý,chce to jen správně kombinovat,vrstvit,barvit…www.czechblondyn-blogspot.com

    of course you are so right – you can wear expensive clothes all over and look pretty horrible and not fashionable at all.The woman you saw had probably never an interest in fashion, then got married to her "sponsor" and spends loads of money, just to spend loads of money – its interesting that she invested in clothes – and you can analyse people's desires – i work at events and i see younger women with their elderly husbands who desperatly try to be fashionable and try to fit in – and you can totally tell that they never looked into a fashion magazine before they got "rich".hope you can understand what i mean 😀 :Syou have a great blog!

    Naprosto souhlasím. Vkus a styl nemá nic společného s cenou oblečení. A když už značky, tak je kombinovat třeba s vintage kouskama ála Kate Moss.Kabelka a kabátek – to jsou moji favoriti. A ten klobouček, který vypadá jako ze 30. let je taky okouzlující, i když bych si na něj asi netroufala.Můj favorit je nadčasový kabát od Ashley Brooke, který jsem sháněla několik let a nakonec se dočkala, černá hedvábná košile a tyrkysové hodinky. To jsou kousky, kterých bych se jen tak nevzdala a možná si je vzala i na pustý ostrov ;-)).
